Here's my latest sign:
I am so happy with the way it turned out.
Here's the board I started with. I painted it green running cream paint through it to give it a dimensional look.
My friend Lesli designed the sign and saying. She used her Cricut. She cut it on vinyl. I pulled the vinyl off and used it as a stencil. I carefully positioned everything and rubbed it down well, so paint wouldn't "leak" under the stencil. I decided to paint the bunny brown. I ran some tan paint through the brown to try to give the effect of fur. I wanted the words to be lavender but thought the hot pink was close to the typical red used for stopping. I really like my color choices. Sorry I didn't take pictures of the process. I simply forgot. After the paint dried, I used my mouse sander and distressed it well.
I drilled holes in the top of the sign to thread a ribbon through. I knotted the ribbon in the front and cut off the excess. I then hot glued bows on top of the knots. The bows really helped balance the overall look.
Here's the finished product. It hangs on our house, by the front door. It's another sign I LOVE!
